Hi All,

Just wanted to share share something I recently discovered. The Barometric Pressure Sensor on my 2002 998 (Ducati P/N 552.4.031.1A, #2 in attached photo) failed, and as some of you may already know, Ducati wants $225 for the replacement. There's a Magneti Marelli part number on the sensor--T-PRT05/A--and it turns out this particular sensor is spec'd as the Manifold Air Pressure Sensor for several Fiat cars. The Fiat part numbers that correspond to this sensor are:

46451792
71714218
71718233
71718678
71728656


By searching these part numbers, I was able to find the sensor on eBay for about $20. The part I bought is generic, but it's been working fine in my bike so far--no DTCs and the bike runs great. Anyway, if people don't mind the fact that it's not a genuine Ducati part, it's an easy way to save about 200 bucks.

Nice find. Had to replace one on a Volvo I had for $150 but never occurred to me to look for the same part on another brand car.

How did you determine the problem? ECU code?

Citron ignition coils are the same as Benelli Tornado coils but a tenth of the price.
Fiat and Renault us the same tps as some Ducati's.
Yamaha have öhlins fork seals at something like $15 as opposed to $100+ from Ducati.
Lots of interchangeable bit that cross reference to Ducati if you look hard enough.

Yeah it's amazing how much money you can save if you're willing to do a little digging
